CentOS 7 installs Python 3.6, pip3 error problem

After installing Python 3.6.3 on CentOS 7, the following errors occurred when using the pip command

pip._vendor.requests.exceptions.SSLError: Can't connect to HTTPS URL because the SSL module is not available.

Because ssl is not configured correctly, after many experiments, summarize the correct installation steps.

Installation steps:

1. Download Python 3.6.3


2. Decompression

The.xz file needs to be decompressed with the xz tool, install xz first

sudo yum install xz

xz d Python-3.6.3.tar.xz

tar xvf Python-3.6.3.tar

3. Download/install OpenSSL and openssl-devel.No wget can be installed via yum install wget

wget https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.1.0g.tar.gz
At the minimum installation of CentOS 7, OpenSSL is installed by default, but I did not find the lib path to install it, so I uninstalled it and installed it myself, since the path is required to install Python 3.6.Command to uninstall openssl:

sudo yum erase openssl

Install openssl:

tar zxvf openssl-1.1.0g.tar.gz
cd openssl-1.1.0g
./config --prefix=/usr/local/openssl
makemake install

The path behind --prefix is the directory you will install, remember to use it below.

Download openssl-devel and install it

sudo yum install openssl-devel

4. Add lib read path

sudo vi /etc/ld.so.conf

Add a line at the end

This is the path where openssl was just installed.Then execute the following command to make it work

sudo ldconfig

5. Modify Modules/Setup.dist File, open the commented out part of ssl, and modify it as follows:

# Socket module helper for SSL support; you must comment out the other
# socket line above, and possibly edit the SSL variable:
_ssl _ssl.c \
        -DUSE_SSL -I$(SSL)/include -I$(SSL)/include/openssl \
        -L$(SSL)/lib -lssl -lcrypto

Where SSL = the path behind is where you actually install openssl

6. Configure Installation

./configure --prefix=/usr/Python3.6.3
make install

If the report cannot be found during installationLibssl.soError in.1.1, check the configuration of steps 3 and 4.
